Anything Goes at I Love Promarkers

 Please read my Data Protection and Privacy Policy – (page tab above)

Good Evening,

We have a brand new challenge today over at

I Love Promarkers

Our theme this fortnight is ..

Anything Goes

How you interpret this is completely up to you, as long as you use either Promarkers, Flexmarkers, Brushmarkers, Aquamarkers or Trias on your work, if not your work will not be eligible.

Our fabulous sponsor is ..

 Ike’s Art Digis

I used this gorgeous image called Blossom


This beautiful image needs very little in the way of embellishments to make a gorgeous card.

I coloured it with Promarkers and teamed it up with some distressed wood paper.

The sentiment was made on my PC.

For more inspiration check out my fellow DT members, they are awesome.

Happy Crafting

On Air

   Please read my Data Protection and Privacy Policy – (page tab above)

Good Evening All,

I hope you are all well. Today is the launch of a new challenge at

Through the Craft Room Door

Our Generous Sponsor this week is

The Paper Shelter

 

The team were given this gorgeous image called

On Air

 

 As soon as I saw this image I knew it would make a brilliant card for my Bestie. She loves a female vocal group called the Bluebirds who sing 1940s style songs.

I duplicated the image and arranged them into a trio and coloured them with Promarkers.

The backing paper is also part of the set.

The sentiment was added on my PC before I printed the paper.

For more inspiration, hop over to the Blog and take a look at my fellow teamies projects.

Birthday Bear

 Please read my Data Protection and Privacy Policy – (page tab above)

 Good Morning Crafty Peeps,

It’s time for a new monthly challenge at …

Jan’s Digi Stamps Challenge

As always the theme is Anything Goes .

There will be 2 random draws; one specifically for entries which use a JDS image, and the other for everyone else.  Each winner will receive a gift certificate for $10 to be spent in the store. 

For my Dt project I used

Birthday Bear

This set is jam packed with goodies.

There are black and white images, sentiments and pre- coloured images.

There is even a little mask to keep the little bear safe.

I added extra candles to the cake in a graphics program because our granddaughter is four.

The sentiment was added to the paper before I printed it from NicsDigitalDesigns

I coloured the images with Promarkers

The ribbon is from my stash and the tiny blue and yellow stars were punched out of glitter paper and mounted on foam pads.

Don’t forget to check out my fellow teamies projects – they are so talented.

Remember to become a follower to be in with a chance to win $10 to spend in the store.

Happy Crafting, stay safe.

Holiday Sleigh

 

Please read my Data Protection and Privacy Policy – (page tab above)

 Good Morning Crafty Peeps, 

                                        Here is our mid challenge post at

Jan’s Digi Stamps Challenge

A new challenge will begin on the first Monday of the month, so you still have plenty of time to enter.

 Two lucky winners will be awarded a $10 Gift Code to the on-line store!

 For my mid challenge inspiration project, I have used

Holiday Sleigh

 
I used the pre-coloured image from this set because I needed an extra Christmas card quickly- there’s always one you need isn’t there?

That’s why these sets are just perfect. There are black and white stamps for times when you want to colour but for times when you want a quick card these pre- coloured images are spot on. 

The background paper is from Winter Backgrounds LeCoqDesign

The sentiment is also from the set.

The glitter card is from my stash

Don’t forget to check out my fellow teamies projects – they are an awesome bunch of gals!!!

Christmas Window Boxes

 

Please read my Data Protection and Privacy Policy – (page tab above)

Good Evening,

It’s time for the final challenge of 2020over at

CRAFT Challenge.

This week the theme is …

Christmas The Last Stretch

Our three fabulous sponsor this week are

Sponsor 1  Eureka Stamps

Sponsor 2 Ike’s Art

Sponsor 3  Cutting Cafe

 

For my DT Project this week I made these fabulous gift boxes using

Christmas Window Boxes From Cutting Cafe

 


As you can see the boxes are made from Rose Gold foil card.

I cut the boxes on my Cricut machine but the set comes with a pdf version if you don’t have an electronic cutting machine.

I cut the centre snowflake out again and added it to the lid with a foam pad to give it dimension. I popped stick on gem in the centre.

The acetate was from Hunky Dory and has a snow pattern on it.

These are perfect to hold 8 Ferrero Rocher chocolates.

For more inspiration please head over to Craft Challenge and check out my fellow team members projects as ever they are awesome!

Happy Christams and Stay safe!

The sentiment was added on the PC before printing.
